lovely pictures of recipes but unfortunately i do not know which picture relates to which recipe. This is quite frustrating when you are tring to envisage a result.
Also the rapadura sugar that is called for is unavalible everywhere i have looked. I tried my well stocked health shop and also one in a bigger town but they did not have it. Although the author gives an overview of substitutions at the beginning, it would be more helpful if in the actual recipes she said stuff like "if you cant find rapadura, use molasses or brown sugar" etc. I have had to do a bit of guess work and trial and error.
Bad stuff aside, the recipes (only made one so far) are very tasty and wholesome sounding and i like the photos and type face. Author seems to know her stuff.

My friend is on a 'wholefood' eating plan due to health issues, so I ordered this book for her birthday as she is new to baking and I thought this would 'kill two birds' etc.

Luckily I glanced through the book before I wrapped it and yes, it contains sensational recipes, is beautifully laid out and stunningly photographed but for a novice, it's a tad too lengthy. Not complicated, I would stress - it's just that a lot of the recipes are two pages long and for my friend's limited ability (and short attention span!), I knew it would sit on her kitchen counter unread and what's the use of that, so I returned it.

However, for the more competent baker or someone who has a little more time to spare, it's a wonderful baking book with recipes you don't see everyday (always a clincher for me) which are sure to impress everyone on the receiving end of your goodies.

I would have kept it myself but I already have a lot of the recipes in my vast collection of baking books, you see.

Go buy this book - you'll be glad you did. Well done, Jude.

Just like her other whole food books this one is packed with far more than excellent recipes. It is also full of fantastic information which demystifies ingredients and helps you adopt a whole food approach to cooking. Highly recommend this as well as all her other books.

I've made nearly a dozen recipes from this book and all have impressed not only on taste but also on ease of baking with clear detailed instructions. Highly recommended for anyone that wants to adopt a healthier approach to baking.

HASH(0x8ce6d6d8) out of 5 stars The lady knows her stuff 26 Mar. 2015
By Alison Wright - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is not just recipes, it's an entire wholefoods education. I must admit, I purchased it rather casually. Having never been a confident or committed baker, I mainly thought to improve my repertoire for healthy things to make alongside my children in the treacherous post-school hours. In this I was somewhat disappointed. If you're looking for something to whip up quickly with a toddler at the helm, a notch more healthy than your average cupcake, then this is perhaps not the book for you. Use Pinterest instead. However, if you let it, this book will open up a whole new world of wholefood knowledge that you probably didn't know you needed. Jude's understanding of whole ingredients and how to use them to best effect is not to be overstated. Every recipe is a thoughtful combination of ingredients, presentation and above all, technique. There are those who will merely substitute buckwheat for wheat, or stevia for white sugar. Shame be upon them! Jude knows exactly where and how substitutions can be made without compromise to the finished product. Where unrefined grains and sweeteners are used, she can still achieve a crumb my grandma would be proud of. She'll introduce fruit, if necessary, or a special technique (even the weather must be considered) and the results will make your average gluten free muffin seem like a soggy tennis ball by comparison. Though I began tentatively, with a few false starts, I've gained in confidence with each recipe. So far I've had smashing success with Lemon-glazed Blueberry Scones, Sweet and Sour Dark Chocolate Cake, while the epic and beautiful Raspberry and White Chocolate Layer Buttermilk Cake is by far the prettiest thing I've seen on the pages of any cookbook. Most importantly, this book is a triumph over the legions of over-styled and image-driven cookbooks on the market. This book, though beautifully photographed and tastefully presented, is ultimately about the theory and practice of better baking, which I for one find a blessed relief. Even my children are beginning to agree.

A note on special diets: Jude gives detailed information on when and how each recipe can be tweaked to accommodate dairy free, egg free, gluten free, nut free and grain free options. However, this is no so-called paleo cookbook. Jude believes the ingredients which have supported people for generations, unrefined and whole grains, fats and sweeteners, are worthy of inclusion in a healthy diet. They bring, above all, deliciousness. I'm with Jude.

HASH(0x8ce6d738) out of 5 stars The recipes are great and fun to make 12 May 2015

Can't believe there is only one review here. Folks you are missing out. This women is a legend. The recipes are great and fun to make. You feel like you are really cooking, it all tastes great, you learn heaps about the chemistry of baking, it is as healthy as baking gets, and my fussy teens eat it! I rarely write reviews but Jude Blereaux rocks. Thankyou for putting a lifetime of cooking experience into a book. You have transformed my cooking life. I also bought "Wholefood For The Family" by the same author. Ditto. Finally I have found vegetarian dishes the kids will actually eat. Each dish is packed with nutrition, and a wonderful experience to cook. I feel I am really nourishing my family. None of the recipes I have tried are fiddle or tricky. Jude Blereaux where have you been all my life!?
